Chiropractic is a very effective treatment for sciatica conditions that can lead to leg and lower back pain.
The cause of the condition is irritation of the sciatic nerve. As with all conditions, causes may vary, but one likely cause is misalignment of vertebrae of the spine which can cause irritation of this large nerve.
When the sciatic nerve is irritated, it can cause profuse pain in the legs and lower back.
Life itself can become highly compromised as this pain can cause loss of sleep and the inability to do simple physical things such as simply walking for extended periods of time.
Some sciatic sufferers seek out medical help with this problem. Typical medical treatment is the use of drugs to alleviate pain and relax muscles.
Some cases may result in surgery. Physical therapy is also another option.
Chiropractic not only provides amazing results for sciatic conditions, it spares the patient the side effects of painkillers and surgery.
Chiropractors are trained to detect subluxations ,which are misalignments of the spine, and to remove them via spinal manipulation.
